Vanessa Hudgens was one of the first Young Hollywood starlets to have her nudies leaked for the showcasing of the interwebz.
And now she's addressing the situation in detail, specifically on the turn it made for her career.
Basically admitting it seemed like the end of the world at first, she tells Paper magazine:
"That was just a really sh*tty situation that sucked. That was by far the worst moment of my career."
But it seems like the photos were the catalyst to convert her image from innocent Disney queen to an edgy woman ready for those edgy, edgy roles! She reveals:
"It's always been hard for actors to cross that bridge, but honestly, you have to hold out and do what you think is right for yourself."
And that she did! Spring Breakers is easily going to be the biggest guilty-pleasure movie of the year. With V-Hudge, Selena Gomez, Ashley Benson, and James Franco all running around in bathing suits and drugs, how could anyone NOT be hypnotized into watching it??
Nessa actually comments on the druggie parts of the film when she says:
"You sit there. You're smoking your fake blunts. You just do it. [And when the cast snorted crushed Vitamin B during the cocaine scenes,] we would run around set like mad men, and people would wonder, 'Did you switch that out with anything?”'
Ha! We certainly hope not!
Her role in the soon-to-be cult hit is risky, fa sho! But next up she's playing a prostitute in Frozen Gound! A hooker AND a drug addict!!
Goin' super dark, she reveals:
"Ever since I was young, I wanted to play really heavy and intense roles and really push myself in a dramatic direction. So I was like, 'A prostitute! I can play a prostitute! This is going to be exciting.'"
Hopefully the role plays as an outlet for all that "heavy, intense" fascination. We'd hate to see anything similar with the drugs happen in real life!
